We make and curate art together under the umbrella of Anima Rising. It's our production company, for lack of a better word, and the name comes from one of our favourite Joni Mitchell songs, Don't Interrupt the Sorrow. Also from the hope that a rise in Anima (feminine energy) will heal the world.
Have you read about Karl Stefanovic, the Australian TV presenter who wore the same suit every day for a year? He decided to do it to prove that men escape the kind of scrutiny to which women are routinely subjected.
Allen Jones' work doesn't really offer us any thing new and further still it rides on the back of the exploitation of women to his benefit. Even more depressingly he seems to have learnt nothing in the past 40 years: his empathetic faculties seem to fail him, as do his technical abilities.
Perhaps we ought to start looking into The Green Party, or even The Animal Welfare Party, or rather than protest voting for the far right, protest vote by destroying our voting slips? Surely anything is better than voting for a party who're no better than the BNP?
As I received treatment on the street from an off-duty paramedic, who believed my shameful lies, my housemate returned home to find my girlfriend crying and blood all over the floor. He assumed I had hit her and left. She insisted he didn't phone the police, which he agreed to when he realised she had perpetrated the violence. Apparently, that didn't warrant the notification of our law enforcers.
Please allow me to congratulate you and your colleagues for an extraordinary accomplishment. Of the 7 billion people on this planet, I doubt more than a few thousand have the capacity to fully understand how complicated the Rosetta project is. I am certainly not one of those few-thousand people.
So, what does a feminist look like? I'm afraid it doesn't look like Cumberbatch, and it doesn't look like anyone who believes that forcing sex workers out of employment because they need 'saving' is the best way forward. Feminism must address the needs of all women and include the voices of all women..
Feminism, and all movements striving for equality, should aim to empower individuals to make choices free from the arbitrary restrains of gender, race, sexuality or class. Sex-selective abortion is a symptom of inequality, and the only way to rid our society of this practice, or any other form of discrimination, is to attack the virus of bigotry itself.
The liberal elite's hegemony over the public discourse is longstanding and indeed we have seen this exact kind of thing before. The media's response to the likes of UKIP and the English Defence League (EDL), both movements with great appeal among the working class, has been to silence, ridicule, and marginalise them.
If you or others need to be inspired to 'woman up' and start challenging this absurd nonsense, might I suggest that you go and see Made in Dagenham -'the gateway drug to feminism'?
The battle to save one psychiatric ward for women in one NHS Trust is one all feminists must support. We cannot allow services to women disappear without a fight. The closure of the ward for women demonstrates everything that is wrong with an NHS that is not patient-led.
The best Disney depictions of human nature lately, I think, are the ones that show what makes women really really angry. And what do you think that is? It's not being bumped into second place in the 'who is the fairest of them all' stakes. It's being deceived into thinking that the man of your dreams is in love with you for ever and ever...
On Tuesday 11 November, the fifth UnderWire Festival will open at The Yard in Hackney Wick, founded by Gemma Mitchell and myself in 2010 with the aim to foreground female filmmaking talent... Unique to UnderWire, films selected for this award are of women's stories and feature female characters at their core.
If there's one piece of ultimately invaluable advice that I can offer to women and girls of all ages, it is that there is nothing more important in this world than creating and maintaining strong, positive and ebullient friendships with other women.
You walk into Topshop and this mannequin is the first thing you see - the ONLY representation of the female body throughout the store. Do you think, 'I'm thin but I'm not that thin - is this how I should look like?' Possibly, yes.
Queen Bey recently displayed her feminist credentials in neon lights at the MTV Video Music Awards. She's a great medium to deliver the feminist message, but does it matter that she clearly benefits from people objectifying her (not to mention benefits from being married to a rapper who made millions singing about bitches, hoes and pimpin')?
